Gun turrets look like the RN stealth turrets, but that would be the wrong period for em. So yeah, someone is having fun.Tony Williams said:Looks very suspicious to me - a ship of that size with no helo hangar? And gun turrets which don't look like any western type? I suspect someone might be having some fun...
You might be on track as the file named RNLitCruiser, which I always though of RN Light (Little) CruiserPMN1 said:I've seen the bottom piccie elsewhere, i think it was called 'RN Littoral Cruiser' but there wasn't any information on it.
Glad to help.TomS said:Turns out that we have seen this before.

And Stefano passed away, so we will not know where did he get hold of this drawingHood said:To me this feels like a fake.
I don't know its provenience, it appeared on Stafano's site many moons ago but I have never found the online source, presumably long lost to internet history.
The design looks rather odd, a bit like a collection of Type 23 pieces added to a large hull. In addition the weapons systems don't entirely make sense and never has the RN desired this kind of 'littoral cruiser' to support amphibious landings (to me the forward davits look to have an LCVP and a hovercraft). I would bank on this being a clever fictional work by an artists unknown.
